Tumescent Liposuction

For liposuction in Dallas, there are few doctors and practices with more experience than Dr. Wooming and the Knox Dermatology team. Dr. Wooming is your liposuction Dallas expert. With more than 20 years of experience performing tumescent liposuction, Dr. Wooming can deliver a new, lasting silhouette that you will be proud to show off.

DFW patients most commonly turn to Knox Dermatology for liposuction to address fat in these areas:

  • abdomen
  • hips
  • upper arms
  • inside and outside of the thighs
  • back (around bra area)

Some fat deposits in certain areas of the body seem to be impossible to lose, even with a healthy diet and exercise routine. Tumescent liposuction is an incredibly safe, proven procedure that can address large deposits of fat or fat stores where other methods of removal or sculpting either did not work or did not provide the expected results.

Why Tumescent Liposuction?

 The tumescent technique offers many benefits over other options:

  • The tumescent technique is able to be performed with local anesthesia in the Knox Dermatology office, meaning you won’t be going “under” as is necessary with general anesthesia.
  • With tumescent liposuction, there is very little bleeding during the procedure itself and the amount of bruising and swelling is limited, which helps speed recovery. Most patients return to normal activity and light exercise within a day or two following the procedure.
  • Support garments only need to be worn for 10-14 days afterwards, rather than up to six weeks with other forms of liposuction.
  • Fat removal is more accurate using the tumescent technique and is less likely to disturb the underside of the skin, causing skin “ripples.” It also reduces the likelihood of needing a “touch-up” liposuction procedure down the road.
  • Even with removal of large pockets of fat, skin shouldn’t hang loose after the procedure as the technique used pulls it tight.

Results you’ve always wanted

One of the best aspects of tumescent liposuction is the incredible results that you can see and feel almost immediately (within a month), but that also continue to improve over a six to nine-month period. The fat cells removed by your liposuction Dallas specialist are permanently gone and do not grow back.  Any weight gain afterwards is likely to be more evenly distributed throughout the body.

Of course, to maintain your new figure over the long-term, it is best to follow a healthy diet and commit to an exercise program.


What To Expect

  • Prior to having tumescent liposuction, you will meet with Dr. Wooming to discuss your goals for the procedure. He will perform an evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate, order any testing needed and discuss how to prepare prior to the procedure.
  • On the day of your procedure, you should plan to have someone drop you off in the morning and pick you up later that day. The length of the liposuction procedure depends on the areas addressed, but the entire process typically takes several hours.
  • Before leaving, the Knox Dermatology team will ensure that the procedure sites appear as they should, apply a compression garment and give you instructions for at-home care.
  • Plan to rest for the remainder of the day and take it easy the following day. Usually any pain or discomfort can be controlled with only over-the-counter pain relievers.
